PIPSC Welcomes the New Federal Cabinet

Fellow members,

On November 20, 2019 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the composition of his new Cabinet.

On behalf of the Institute’s 60,000 members, I would like to congratulate these Members of Parliament on their appointment, or reappointment, to Cabinet.  We wish them every success in their portfolio.

We especially welcome the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos to the position of President of the Treasury Board. We look forward to working with him and to maintaining the positive relationship that we have enjoyed with the Employer of the majority of our members since 2015.

The Institute is ready to collaborate effectively with all parties to ensure that the federal public service meets the growing needs and aspirations of all Canadians in the years ahead.

We will be analyzing several of the key departmental mandate letters in the days ahead and will inform our members of how the government’s priorities line up compared to ours.

Better Together!

Debi Daviau,

As you are certainly aware given the extensive media coverage over the past few days, at time of writing bed bugs have been found in at least 8 government buildings located in the National Capital Region. They have also been reported in federal government buildings in Montreal and Winnipeg. There may be other affected locations across Canada that have yet to be formally identified.
